What are Venous Leg Ulcers?
Venous Leg Ulcers can be as befuddling to patients as they are too numerous doctors who do not have experience with wound care and are not vascular surgeons. A leg ulcer is a long-lasting (chronic) sore that takes more than 4 to 6 weeks to heal. They usually develop on the inside of the leg, just above the ankle.
Causes of Venous Leg Ulcers
The issue starts with poor blood circulation in the legs. The blood flow issue could include arteries, veins, or both. Patients who smoke or have diabetes are at particularly high risk for having artery pathology. Patients with varicose veins and long-standing leg swelling are in danger of creating venous pathology in that they have built up thickened and stained skin. Venous ulcers do not happen in all patients with varicose veins and may happen without varicose veins present. At the point when skin changes start to show up, the probability of ulceration builds. It is clearly better to treat the vein issues before this happens.
Albeit many doctors who are not knowledgeable about the treatment of leg ulcers accept that they happen precipitously, almost certainly, they happen following what might be a minor injury. The skin, which is already compromised from poor circulation, then fails to heal.
How do we treat Venous Leg Ulcers?
Venous Ulcers hurt and are difficult to treat. Treatment consists of 2 components. The first is tending to the wound. The most widely used curative of the venous ulcer is pressure dressings impregnated with medicine which helps heal and decrease edema. These dressings are called Unna boots. The subsequent issue with respect to the treatment of venous ulcers is addressing the venous circulation problem. Treatment of venous insufficiency will encourage mending of the wound and lessen recurrence.
